On NEWSREAL, people -- not corporations -- make the news!
Indymedia NewsReal is a monthly compilation of coverage from citizen journalists across the nation. Please keep sending in submissions and spreading the word to videoactivists you know!
NewsReal is a monthly joint project of Free SpeechTV (http://www.freespeech.org) and the Independent Media Center (http://www.indymedia.org/en/index.shtml ).
NewsReal's goals are to embolden the global movement for social, environmental, and economic justice, strengthen non-corporate communication networks, and to encourage authentic participatory democracy, one community at a time.
Each program covers actions taken in local communities, by ordinary people, to address critical issues like the war, air and water pollution, reproductive rights, homelessness, for-profit prisons, sweatshops, racism, police brutality, indigenous struggles, and more.
